I discovered Stevewren's blog on a treasure hunt I once went on --searching online for something, one treasure sends you on the road to the next; I'm sure you know what I mean. I stumbled upon one artsy woman's blog, and by clicking on the links of those who commented, there opened up a whole world of wonderful, intelligent, creative women who regularly post inspiring things on their blogs. Steviewren is a talented artist, clever and ironic, soon to be discovered I'm sure.
Here is the sixth photo from my sixth folder:
Here I am in Santa Rosa, the car all packed up for the trip home, April last year. My son and I were about to drive home after being stuck in Santa Rosa for eight days as he recovered from his eye surgery.
It was a grueling time, staying in a motel room with a teenager in misery and pain. The only thing that fueled me for my job as nurse and cheerleader was bad motel-room coffee. The whole time I was there, I longed for Starbucks, but my own desires were secondary to keeping my boy comfortable and cheered.
So here I am, getting ready for the three-hour drive home. The happy look on my face is extreme relief at getting to leave finally and happiness at the long-awaited taste of a Starbucks Iced Mocha.
I took this picture myself because the relief I felt was so remarkable I wanted to document it!
According to Steviewren, these are the Rules of the Game:
1. Pick the 6th picture in your 6th folder.Here are the six people I want to tag, and as Steviewren said, "Play along only if you want to."
2. Post that picture on your blog and the story that goes along with the picture.
3. Tag 6 other people that you know or don’t know to do the same thing and leave a comment on their blog or an e-mail letting them know you chose them.
